Konstantin Kuzminsky was one of five young St. Petersburg poets whose collection of poetry (The Living Mirror) was published in New York in 1972. Two of them – Kuzminsky and Josef Brodsky – soon immigrated to the United States. Brodsky became famous, won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1987 and died of a heart attack nine years later. Kuzminsky’s fate is different. He lives in a tiny upstate New York village, on the bank of the Delaware River in an old shanty house near a railway crossing. His freedom is complete. His devotion to art is absolute. He lives with his books, his art collection, his cats, his poetry and his wife Emma, who is known at home as Mouse. They both are not only the protagonists, but also the co-directors of the film, including home videos by Mouse and interviews with the poet and his wife.
